Episode of Ben Watson's Late Lunch With Out To Lunch, the long-running show on Resonance FM. It's named "Any Idiot with an Audio Recorder" after a soundfile released nine days previously on SoundCloud by Alastair Kemp (diagnosed schizophrenic and editor of The Newhaven Journeyman "where music, madness and politics meet"). Kemp's on-the-dog-walk musings about peer pressure, semiotics and injustice are duly aired towards the end of the show. Forgotten remnants of Frank Zappa's disputed oeuvre rub shoulders with Watson's recordings of Iris (7) and Mordecai (4) on a halfterm visit to Tilbury Fort. There is also a collision between composer Simon Fell's treatment of Mahler's Adagietto from the Fifth and Iancu Dumitrescu (for whom Mahler is the reprehensible ruin of a great tradition). Dr Feelgood (the great British pub rock band, not Piano Red, the New Orleans pianist) is superimposed on Ornette Coleman. As if you couldn't guess, only Godfather of Soul James Brown is deemed sufficient solution to such a broth of eager opposites. NB: During the broadcast, Watson remarked that his copy of Simon Fell's "(In)articulation" (Kaleidozyklen, Bruce's Fingers, 2002) had developed tracking problems. In what you have here, the defective CD track was replaced by a prior edit. Although stamped all over with prohibitions ("mixed and edited version"/"incorrect EQ settings"/"written at 4x speed"/"FOR DEMO PURPOSES ONLY"), this audio (despite a few audience coughs) proved to be incomparably more touching and present than the Bruce's Fingers official release: "cheese" - Fell's coinage for the emotional affect despised by academic composers - is toasted to the heavens. Later, sprawled on a horse-hair sofa, OTL was heard to opine: ""(In)articulation" remains the ONLY technical response to a film soundtrack which torqued (and tortured) the musical sensitivities of a generation" - he was refering of course to Visconti's Death in Venice.
